I am just a gal who loves to knit and spin in my spare time and thought it would be nice to share my projects with everyone.

Tidal Wave Socks

This pretty pattern called Tidal Wave was designed by my girlfriend Deby Lake for SWTC. You can get this as a free pattern on the SWTC web site. Deby has several very nice patterns out and I love knitting them. This is done with Tofutsies color #731. The pattern has made the color design stripe kind of like a candy cane. I used size 2 dpn's and took the design down the foot. I am ready to decrease for the toe on sockie #1. It is such a light summery sock. I am really liking the knitting as well as stopping just to feel the fabric. Great job Deby!!!!

Garter Rib Socks

I have been working on these socks for the past 3 weeks. With spring here and plenty of yard work, knitting and spinning time are at a minimum. But, I work it in every minute I can. Even if it is my half hour lunch at work. The yarn I used is Sockotta. These socks are called "Garter Rib" from "Sensational Knitted Socks" book. It was my very favorite sock book untl I got "More Sensational Knittted Socks" by Charlene Schurch. Now I think it is a tie. They are both my favorites!!!

As you can see, I only need to finish off the toe decreases on the second sock and I will finally have them finishsed.


Pencil Roving

This pencil roving is so pretty. It is pastel in color with bits of lavender, pink, yellow and off white and is a very very soft kid/Merino blend. I purchased it at Leah's shop If you are ever near Millington, Michigan you should stop in and see her shop. I am spinning this fiber to approx. a fingering weight. It should make a beautiful scarf.
